Our Daily Bread History:

While working for the Franciscan Friars in their Development office, Ruth "Cookie" Vogelpohl saw a gentleman digging through the garbage can and emerge with a half-eaten bag of hamburgers. The gentleman walked down the street, sat on a stoop and proceeded to eat the contents. Cookie could not get the image of the gentleman out of her mind and was speaking of the event to her aunt, Sr. Clara, and remarked, "Someone needs to do something." Her aunt responded to her saying, "You are someone, Cookie."

In 1985, with the help of her father, Ben, friends and other family members, Cookie found and rehabbed a basement on Logan Street and Our Daily Bread was born. In 2001 Our Daily Bread moved to the current location, 1730 Race Street, across from Findlay Market. The building was once an IGA and an A&P.
